kathleen sebelius said about the digital architecture. >> we are definitely on track to have a significantly different user experience by the end of this month. that was our commitment. and our experience. we have added hardware. we added software. we are continuing to work on the parts of the website that were too confusing to people. and -- well beyond december 1st, those improvements will continue. i would urge -- you and your -- folks on the ground, to not hesitate to recommend that people go to healthcare.gov and get signed up. that experience is currently working much better and it will continue to work much better. >> that is the key? >> that is the key. what she said is important. i have been tough on affordable care. quite broken since the beginning. digital architecture was flawed when it emerged. i think fundamentally. folks eventually, the obama administration knew that. they stopped. this was a really important change in the rhetoric they put their communications plan on hold. their whole big outreach effort. and they did not recommend people go. they were very c

that the health care rollout has been a disaster. the website doesn't work. we will have kathleen sebelius the head of hhs on the phone as we speak talking to reporters trying to it out it. democrats are nervous in congress right now. let's not forget, heading to the midterm elections specifically in the senate, there are several senators that are in danger of losing their seats if democrats lose five or six seats, they lose control. >> i've talked to administration officials who believe once they get the website fixed that not all of their problems will be solved but things are going to get much bet per. when people start to see the law is working and the website is working, be yes there were folks who lost coverage and that was not good for the president but feel some of this could disablize. >> i think that's true. the one problem right now you have to take into account for the democrats is that the narrative is being drawn right now. even if it does stabilize, there's still going to be an after effect and still the obama administration trying to get democrats to be support of it, even
a look at something with me. i don't know if you caught this today, congressman. kathleen sebelius wrote a blog ahead the deadline which we know now is a moving target with thought an extension and shut it down overnight. highlights on the screen for you and all of our viewers now. i just want you to see she has kind of put a shopping theme to getting coverage on healthcare.gov once it goes live again. a holiday shopping theme. she says the product is popular. so avoid the lines and shop healthcare.gov during off peak hours, morning, nights, weekends. that sounds like a lot of hours. sounds like it's going to be crowded which gets them back into the problem they were trying to avoid. next point is have your income and tax information ready when you log on. 23 shopping days in december for coverage starting january 1st, 2014. no need to rush, unless, of course, you have got a cancellation notice and you are desperate to get healthcare before the first. your thoughts? >> well, isn't it amazing united states government sharp retailer. i don't think that helps the confidence and credibility

kathleen sebelius. she put this out yesterdmorning course, it's black friday. the things you can do to basically make it easy to shop for health care during the holiday season. she reminds people that the product is good and unlike black friday it will not run out. i know it sounds funny. i know it does. you know, michael, the thing with this is people are going to look at this and say, is this real information i need to know? >> well, also, it sort of reveals how terrible this website and how terrible the whole venture has been for obama care and the administration. we've been online shopping now for close to two decades. amazon was first -- sold its first book in 1995. i was on amazon earlier today. they told me i could get an artificial christmas tree delivered to my house in two days. it's really easy and it didn't matter what time i was going on the website to order this thing. so it just goes to show you that the administration has really sort of fumbled the whole rollout and brings into question a lot about what the federal government can actually do in the marketplace as the
to get obama care up and running. kathleen sebelius saying it is a work of constant improvement. how in the world will supporters of obama care defend the new laws as the deadline comes and goes and as those policy cancellations keep rolling in? particularly as they head home and mingle with a lot of unhappy constituents during the thanksgiving and christmas holidays something republican senator marco rubio says may be a game changer. >> it has to be refield. how long will it take for democrats to realize and cooperate? so far i think at the upper echelons of the democratic party they're being stubborn bit. my prediction, check back in eight week. >> joining the panel "wall street journal" columnist dan headinger and james freeman. dan, quite a sight. when lawmakers go home, i'm thinking back to 2010 and those tea party town halls. are we going to see a redo of that? >> i think we probably will, david, but the people there will not be members of the tea party, just be average americans and they're going to come in and be very upset about the stories that they have heard of people hav
or they come around on delaying the bill. kathleen sebelius said the website would run by november 30th. will demchemes call for her resignation if it doesn't run? >> what do the democrats need to do as a public revolt to save their own skin for the next election? >> they are all trying to play it safe. they started to distance themselves from the entire affordable care act. and so again, it is what plays in certain districts. looking at immigration reform. republicans distance themselves when it comes to anti- immigration policy. they will brace themselves and prepare for the worst. >> we'll so what you are doing on subpoena. >> thank you, marjorie and johnathon. >> thank you. >> and now to an amazing story that went viral b in may. a pearl harbor survivors had a dying wishful filled in dra matec fashion. >> bud cloud had one request. >> it was his doing request. >> to so the navy and ship with the same name as the one he served on in parlharbor. >> it was one of the few ships that got out. >> his beloved friends organized the day. she told him in the hospital. >> bud yells. i want dis
individuals. kathleen sebelius is the secretary of health and human services. >> it's troubling to think that someone could pick and choose, not based on science, not based on health care not based on anything else, but pick and choose which services to provide to employees. that would be a troubling picture. >> pelley: anna werner is joining us now. anna let's look in the future a little bit. what would happen if the supreme court ruled in favor of the administration, but the company still refused to cover birth control? >> reporter: well, at that point, scott, if hercules industries chose not to cover contraception, its attorneys say the company would face fines. how much? by their calculation, a company of that size, those fines could amount to as much as $26,000 per day. >> pelley: anna, thanks very much. the court is expected to hear arguments in this case in march. more positive signs in the economy today. the nasdaq composite closed above 4,000 for the first time in 13 years. investors were encouraged by today's housing data. home construction is up 13.9% over the same time last y

services don't knew the site had serious problems before it launched. but hhs secretary kathleen sebelius denied she ignored warning signs. >> action plans were put in place to address issues and problems. >> reports claim white house officials were inflexible and would not negotiate with the contractors to extend the october 1st debut. >> do you believe the system was delivered on october 1st. >> it was. it wasn't performing as well as we liked. but we delivered a system. >> is that the proper word. >> i think there are problems. >> problems president obama has admitted to. >> i think we underestimated the complexities of building out a website that needed to work the way it should. >> but the administration insists the health care website is improving every day. the president hired outside help to fix it and appointed the economic designer to oversee repairs. >> the country's 600,000 homeless people fighting to survive, a major worry is holding on to what little possessions they have. diane eastabrook highlights an issue trying to solve the problem. >> as night falls on chicago, the cit
. not closely involved. i do not want to overstate that. host: kathleen sebelius has taken responsibility. she has said she is to blame for this. who else is responsible? what could the government has done differently? guest: i do not know who had their fingerprints all over this and who did not. the fundamental mistake was not doing what a number of mistakes, including massachusetts, have done. there are 2 sets of initiatives required to implement reform. one is a whole set of regulations, which i think hhs has done a reasonably good job of doing under pressure. the other element is to create a new marketplace. a commercial enterprise for which the traditional agencies are not well-suited. a number of the states that have done exchanges have set up semi- independent agencies with a board of directors appointed by the governor and others. like the sec or the fcc. they were able to develop a new function for government rather than lodge it in and existing agency. host: do they permit medical underwriting? in massachusetts? host: it is important with the aca and the rest of the country. we had a
like obamacare, like cap and trade. do you think all the debacle and kathleen sebelius called it that, the debacle with obamacare is a tipping point for that approach to government? >> i do. thank goodness people are awakened from their slumber thinking that it's okay for government to deceive us in thinking that they can -- they can give us free stuff. there ain't no such thing as a free lunch. and people have opened their eyes now understanding tea party patriots, they were right when they said this big-government policy crammed down our throat called obamacare, it's not good for america. people have awakened and realized tea party was right then. they may be right on a couple of other issues too. it is a tipping point. people are awake now. >> governor, on the other hand, obamacare does, and there is nobody questioning this, he is going to extend coverage to 30 million americans who are now uninsured, according to the nonpartisan congressional budget office, the last comprehensive republican approach would only cover 3 million. isn't that a problem? don't you guys have to come up w
the record" right now. if i were in his shoeings, i would say can you get kathleen sebelius on the phone for me? >> you can imagine that this is the kind of post mortem that's going to be happening for years about how this health care site was constructed so poorly. first there was a long list of federal contractors, many of which had no particular expertise in creating systems exactly like this one. we have to remember that in public systems, for systems response sorried by the government, this is unprecedented so really this is expertise that can be found in the private sector, in consumer driven companies that are used to interfacing with the public. those are the ones who really have the expertise here. a and the administration didn't rely on many of them to help out. they seem to be relying on them a little bit now to triage the site or provide alternatives for the public. >> in five days when the deadline for november 30th arrives and the website probably is not working the way the website would like it to or the way that many consumers need it to. at that point does president obam
't happen said franken when asked if most of the problems aren't under control by then. and kathleen sebelius announced next year they push back the deadline for enrolling in obama care. conveniently after the midterm elections. surprised? joining me, congressmen go merit and lance. rare in studio appearance. >> yeah. >> i'm watching the announcement saturday night on the deal with iran. i'm thinking why does the administration trust this regime that's been fighting proxy wars and late last week was threatening to wipe israel off the map again. >> that's what they believe. why do they trust them more? why did the clinton administration trust north korea more than republicans. it's the same mentality. conservatives, patriots are the problem. but if you look, they are following the north korea game plan. the policy coordinator for the clinton administration is now leading negotiations for the obama administration. if you remember in 1994 they got a promise that in return for nuclear reactors, help with nuclear power all they had to do was renounce nuclear weapons and -- >> they ended u
. here's kathleen sebelius just yesterday in a conference call with state officials. >> i would urge you and your folks on the ground to not hesitate to recommend that people go to healthcare.gov and get signed up. >> steve hayes, senior writer for "the weekly standard" my guest and weekly fox news contributor. great to see you, steve. >> reporter: hey, gretchen. >> what do you make of this mixed message and does it come from the very tippy top? >> reporter: yeah, i think it certainly does. you've seen all sorts of indications from the administration that, a, the website is not going to be ready when they said it was on december 1st and, b, the problems beyond the website are much more willing that is to let on. you see that with the discussion with james about the small business administrations, back for another year, november 2014. and the indications already through leaks and in public statements from secretary sebelius and others are that this website that we were promised was going to be functioning on december 1st will not, in fact, be functioning and could be in for another collap
